Calculation:

Graphical display of the Ichimoku indicator consists of five parts.

1. Tenkan-sen line coup. The value at time period (t) is calculated according to the following formula:

Tenkan-sen – формула

where max (Hi) -  maximum value of the price in the past (i) periods;

min (Li) -  minimum value of the price in the past (i) periods.

In fact Tenkan-sen in time period (t) is the midpoint of the price range for the past (i) periods.

2. Kijun-sen - the base line. The value at time period (t) is calculated by the formula:

Kijun-sen – формула

where max (Hk) - maximum price value for the last (k) periods;

min (Lk) - minimum value of prices for the last (k) periods.

In fact, Kijun-sen in time period (t) is the midpoint of the price range for the last (k) periods.

3. Senkou Span A. The value at time period (t) is calculated by the formula:

Senkou Span A – формула

This line runs halfway between the lines Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen, however on graph it shifts (m) periods ahead. Senkou Span A line forms the so-called fast border of Ishimoku cloud.

4. Senkou Span B. The value at time period (t) is calculated by the formula:

Senkou Span B – формула

where max (Hn) - maximum price value during the last (n) periods;

min (Ln) - minimum price value during the last (n) periods.

Senkou Span B line also moves on (m) periods forward and produces a so-called slow border of Ishimoku cloud.

5. Chikou Span . Represents the closing price, shifted to (m) periods back.

To add and configure the indicator, you must open the settings window.
